One Loyal Man

Spain
I can confirm another of the leaked castings.

The role of Jory Cassel, captain of guards and right hand man to Lord Eddard Stark, will be filled by Scottish actor JAMIE SIVES. Yes, ironic as it sounds, we will have a Jamie guarding Ned.



Jory is the nephew of Ser Rodrik Cassel, Winterfell's master-at-arms, and the son of one of Ned's companions who died at the Tower of Joy. Though young, he commands the escort of fifty guardsmen who accompany Ned to King's Landing.

Born in Edinburgh, Jamie Sives has been acting professionally since 1999, though his bio says he really wanted to be a footballer. His long list of credits includes an appearance on DOCTOR WHO which fans of that show might recall. He's also featured in two of this year's movies -- the comedy GET HIM TO THE GREEK and the 3-D remake of CLASH OF THE TITANS.



So far as I know, Jory will be the only one of the Stark guards in King's Landing with a speaking role. The rest of the Ned's men -- Desmond, Fat Tom, Hullen, Vayon Poole -- will be there, but as extras, featured extras, and background characters.

What ?? No lines for Desmond ? Who will tell Arya the quote "every northerner is worth ten of these southron swords, so
you can sleep easy.?" (sic).

I admit, that would be a nice line to have in there somehow. Maybe they can give it to Jory?

Yay for fan service in the extras! We'll all be watching and ID-ing :D Was worried for a bit that there would just be "generic Winterfell population" and none of the ones we know and love :)

Hmmm. Interesting. Any more of this going on? Anybody else not having lines like this? Not that I'm angry, just curious :)

Spoiler?
Does this need to be spoiler tagged? I appreciate the clarification of who he is related to and whatnot anyhow.

Re: Spoiler?
Where do you see a spoiler? The death of Jory's father? That happens a decade and a half before the first book opens...

If we define "spoiler" too broadly, I am not going to be able to say anything at all.

Re: Spoiler?
I misread the one part of a paragraph and my mind inserted a spoiler... the big book one spoiler.

that's not ironic, it's just coincidental

Not true, it is ironic in that it is "the opposite of what one would expect." Look it up! If not that, what do you think ironic means?

How about Harwin? He does have more a role to play further down the line (trying not to be spoilerish).

excellent casting! now that we know who is who, I can't wait to see one of my favourite scenes involving Ned, Jory, Littlefinger and Jaime at King's Landing!

Looks Like?
Is it just me or does he not look like Nathan Lane from "The Birdcage" with Robin Williams?
